Let's hope the "original one" is the final design. We need more information on that btw...
Maybe it's the conceptual design before they released the white and sexy one. I'll cross my fingers...

It was an old design of Kingkey when its design is not published. You can see the Shun Hing Square is right behind in the picture

Here is a rendering of Lvjing Tower.

I hope the design wasn't changed because the first one was so much better. It was like 2IFC dipped in glass or something, very classy. This one is a bad rip off of Union Square.

Beautiful renders. What is the functional use of the uppermost floors lighted up there?
